I write this post today with a heavy heart. My 18 year old cousin was killed early this am in a car crash. Her boyfriend was driving. (There is more to the story. a lot more, but I will not get into that here). So after getting the early morning text and the phone calls. I was just try to keep my mind busy. So I decided to scrap a happy moment on our recent trip to the Grand Cayman. Through phone calls all day I got this layout done. (I don’t really remember even doing it)
These pictures were taken one night out at dinner. This is my loving sister Amy (Mimi as the kids will call her) and her husband Craig (Uncle Craigy). They are the happiest and most generous couple I know. Through conversations, tears, screams and some laughs, Amy said she needed something to put a smile on her face. So I sent her a picture of these.
This is a two page layout.
She loved it.
I used some Creative Embellishments and put some trinkets in the flower cluster and wrapped some twine around the clusters.
I am very addicted to sprays right now and am trying them on everything.
Page 2 is just another flower cluster with some chippies and a bunch of layering. Loved the hearts and wanted to have something on there because Amy and Craig have this endless love that most people would be envious of.
I want to say thank you for stopping by today. I am thankful to have visitors and to share my projects in hope of getting some creative juices flowing.
Life is short, too short in some cases. Capture every moment possible and truly “Pursue Happiness”
Everyone deserves it.
